Everyone, please step up to the plate for free punches to my face, I'm about to eat my words mostly due to NODES mentioning a Factory Re-Set, something I never knew about, never heard about.

I just tried it and low and behold my repaired NR809 is now working perfectly again, I want to be joyous, don't mind eating my words or getting internet biotch slapped by Onkyo supporters here but I am still feeling a bit apprehensive, what caused me or rather what was fixed by a factory re-set? Additionally all my settings are maintained? shouldn't those have been cancelled out?

Last night the AVR wasn't pumping out an Audio or Video now it is after a factory re-set, what the heck is going on here?

Yes, I should have had more faith in Onkyo, the Repair made and this model however I think I have a bit of PTSD about HDMI issues with this AVR.

Jose has instructed me to bring the repaired unit back to the repair facility as I have a 90 day window on their repair work, he wants to make sure I don't fall out of that window in case the Factory Re-Set didn't fully resolve the issue I expereinced secondary to getting the HDMI board replaced some 12+ days ago.

If the unit fails again he stated he'll assist me with getting the unit replaced.

Let the Saga continue.

Was the unit out for a 1-time out of warranty repair the first time ? Man that's a pain connecting-unconnecting, sending and receiving etc !! What causes the unit to have to have a hard -reset ? I'm hoping he will hook you up with a upgrade !!

I had an HDMI Board replaced while still covered under warranty a little over 11-12 days ago...

It seemingly failed again this past Saturday, No Audio of Video out of HDMI Out#1 or #2 ...

Performed a Factory Re-Set and once again had Audio\Visual out of HDMI Out #1 and #2 ....

While discussing the need for a Factory reset and what I should do, I have been instructed to return it to the repair center even though it seems to be working correctly as Jose wouldn't want me missing the 90 day return policy for the Repair Centers work performed 11-12 days ago.

As for the wiring, I have it all zip tied and perfectly loomed within my entertainment stand, its a pain to unhook it and re-install it every time it acts up, additionally driving 2 plus hours round trip to drop it off, then another 2 hours round trip to pick it up is money out of my pocket.

In closing thus far, even though I an unhappy overall with the NR-809 as a product I am happy with how Onkyo is responding to my issues. It still sucks that the NR-809 seems to have more problems than should be acceptable, which makes me very disgruntled however Jose and Onkyo haven't alienated me yet.

Updates to follow.

I just heard back from the repair facility and they cannot find anything wrong with unit, all functions, features and specs are operational and as they should be, so.....I'll be picking it up tomorrow.

1.) HDMI board fails
2.) HDMI board replaced under warranty
3.) 11-12 days after HDMI board was replaced both HDMI Outs stopped working and only returned to operational after a Factory Re-Set.
4.) At Onkyo request unit brought back to repair center, all is deemed normal.

My question is this, HDMI board fails once and is replaced, I expereince the same issue regarding HDMI Out operation failure a second time only to be fixed with a Factory Re-Set, should this be acceptable on my part? Obviously something went wrong during the second failure as I wasn't getting anything out of the HDMI outputs yet it gets fixed after just doing a re-set? Is the re-set a mask or a permanent fix? Should I be worried for future issues down the road?

To be continued.

I got the out of warranty repair approved and need to drop the unit off to service center.
I guess I should try Factory reset before that. More so as you confirm that it maintains the settings and also if can avoid the pain of disconnect/connect etc.
But in any case thank you and to Jose who was very prompt.

Hard reset did not fix it. BTW it also cleared all my settings...
So it goes to service center for that repair... Let's see how it goes..

They did not clear mine even though they did update the firmware. I had renamed two of my inputs and run Audyssey and those setting were still there when I got it back.

The Saga continues, as I suspected even though I was told the repair unit could not find an issue with it after the second time I brought it to them, it failed for what I consider the 3rd time, No Video (I have audio) out of HDMI Output #1 .

Heres my latest copied and pasted email to Jose at Onkyo.....As you can imagine I am INCENSED with anger.

Jose, please excuse the tone of the below email as I am fit to be tied right now and am so upset I can hardly formulate a coherent email, if you couldn't guess as to the reasons of my contempt, bad mood and disgust, yup my NR-809 failed again, least I think it has.

Today I powered up my Sharp TV, my Scientific Atlantic 8300HD Cable box and NR-809 AVR, I could hear audio from the Cable Box but could not see any video being displayed on my TV.

I made sure I had the TV set to display the right Input (HDMI 1), made sure I selected Cable Box/Satellite on the NR-809 as that's the HDMI port I have the Cable boxed plugged into on the back of the NR-809 and made sure all the HDMI connections from Cable Box to AVR to TV were tight and secure, all to no avail, I have sound but no video.

I quickly pushed the Setup button on the NR-809 to see if the GUI would appear on the screen, it would not.

To rule out the HDMI cables themselves I plugged the Cable Box right into the HDMI 1 port on my TV and I had Sound and Video. I then grabbed another cable and did the same thing, going from Cable Box to the TV, this cable also worked as I had Sound and Video from the Cable Box to the TV. Knowing that I had 2 good HDMI cables I then plugged 1 HDMI Cable from the Cable Box into the CBL/SAT HDMI Input on the back of the NR-809 and then from HDMI Out #1 on NR-809 to HDMI Input #1 on the TV yet I could only hear Audio, it is not displaying Video out of the HDMI #1 Out.

You have no idea how angry I am right now. Let me re-cap just to illustrate how costly, and mentally painful ownership of this faulty, defective and lemon of a product has been.

1.) May 17th I ask you for assistance in dealing with broken NR-809, HDMI Ou #1 and #2 were not functioning. You authorize me bringing it to Authorized Repair Center for repairs.

2.) May 21st I drive 2 hours, 100+ Miles round trip to drop of the broken NR-809, HDMI Board was replaced with a "So-Called" updated, non failure prone Board.

3.) June 11th I drive yet again 2 hours and 100 miles round trip to pick up the repaired unit.

4.) June 17th not more than 6 days after repairs I experienced intermittent HDMI Out failure, though the problem seemed to resolve itself.

5.) Fearing the worse on June 18th I order an Extended Warranty from Onkyo.

6.) June 21st the Unit failed completely (AGAIN!!!!), no Audio or Video out of HDMI #1 or #2. An AVS.com Forum member suggested I try a "Factory Re-Set" to see if this would resolve the problem, which it did, I once again had a "So-Called" working unit.

7.) Fearing that the unit was inherently flawed and was going to die on my shortly I contacted you yet again to seek advice, you suggested that even though the unit appeared to be working after a Factory Re-Set that I should bring it back to the Authorized Repair Center as I only had a 90 day warranty on the work they completed and that it would be a good idea for them to inspect the unit yet again.

8.) June 24th I spend 2 hours and a 100+ miles driving round trip to yet again drop the unit off for an inspection.

9.) June 25th I receive word from the repair center that the unit checked out fine, all specs and features were working correctly, there was nothing wrong with the unit.

10.) June 26th I spend 2 hours and 100+ miles round trip to yet again pick up a so-called properly working, non defective NR-809 AVR.

11.) June 28th, here we are, right back at the damn beginning, I'm sitting here with a non operational, NR-809 writing yo an email as to what to do next? SO WHAT IS ONKYO going to do next?

In closing lets look at my expenditures, above and beyond the actual purchase price of this Piece of **** AVR:

At my job I earn $25.00 an hour, I've spent 8 hours out of work driving to and from Pinnacle Service Solutions for repairs and pick ups. Thats $200.00 dollars.

I've driven 400+ miles dropping off and picking up this POS AVR from the repair center. My truck gets 20 miles to the gallon, that's 20 gallons of gas used at $3.65 cents a gallon for a total of $73.00 in Fule Costs.

I would estimate I've spent 4-5 hours hooking up and UN-hooking this AVR into the rest of my entertainment center.

NONE OF THIS SHOULD BE REMOTELY ACCEPTABLE ESPECIALLY FOR A DEVICE AT THIS PRICE POINT. I AM NOT THE ONLY 1 EXPERIENCING MULTIPLE HDMI ISSUES WITH THE NR-809 AS IT IS VERY WELL DOCUMENTED ALL ACROSS THE NET. HOW IN GOOD FAITH CAN I DRIVE ANOTHER 200 MILES AND 4 HOURS TOTAL TO DROP OFF AND PICK UP A UNIT THAT I KNOW WITH QUESTION WILL FAIL AGAIN, PROBABLY IN A MATTER OF A FEW DAYS AFTER PICKING IT UP. AFTER I PICKED IT UP THE SECOND TIME AND WAS TOLD THAT IT WASN'T BROKEN I KNEW WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT THE UNIT WAS SCREWED UP AND WOULD BE FAILING AND TO TELL THE TRUTH I KNEW IT WOULD BE ONLY A MATTER OF DAYS BEFORE I WOULD BE WRITING YOU AGAIN.

So, what are you going to instruct me to do? I am only a few hundred miles from Salem Massachusetts the historic site of the 1800 Witch Trials, should I bring it there to have the demons exorcised from it? That may sound absurd and blatantly sarcastic, but what the **** should I do? Everything I've been instructed to do has failed, you would think a company with the engineering might, financial means, and desire to stay in a good light in the consumers eyes would fix an issue like this, a wide spread, un-fixable, lemon of a product. I know contacting a lawyer will probably cost me way more than what just buying a better unit from Denon, Marantz or Pioneer would cost but it's an option I have to think of as I think this is teetering towards fraud on Onkyos part, and regardless of what you do for me I will never recommend or purchase an Onkyo out of my own pocket because I suspect if I was foolish enough to do so again I would have to spend roughly $300+ on Gas and lost hourly wages getting the unit repaired, would have to spend 8 hours of my live shuttling around a large black broken paper weight of an AVR, who in there right mind would sign up for that?

The balls in your court. I eagerly await your reply.

Well, I cannot explain it, it it does nothing to ease my hate of this product but I brought my unit downstairs, hooked it up to another TV and Cable box and it worked?

I brought it all back upstairs and it worked there as well?

I don't know if this is a intermittent cable issue or an intermittent AVR issue?

I've tried numerous HDMI cables, as outlined in my last email and when trouble shooting earlier in this sage and I find it hard to believe that I'm experiencing numerous HDMI cable failures, and or intermittent HDMI cable issues. The cables that didn't work upstairs, worked downstairs, and vice versa.....I cannot explain it.

In closing, I've never experienced the frustration as I have with this product.

This is where a video camera comes in handy. You record the issue, you send it in as proof so they cannot call you an "idiot".


They might make you send it into Onkyo directly now, hopefully they will pay the shipping fee.

I commend you on doing an outstanding job with the documentation on the chain of events that have occurred with your 809 !!
You have a lot more patience than I could ever have !!! In my opinion Jose needs to get you an upgrade/replacement A.S.A.P as I don't think I have seen many having the issues that you are !!
Good luck and stay on it !!

Thanks Man, I don't know if all of the failures I have expereinced, and pseduo expereinced are the fault of the NR-809, the Repair Facility or me and my wiring, there seems to be to many varibles in assessing blame. I do know the initial failure was verified by the repairer to be a faulty HDMI board but subsequent trips to the repair facility have not found anything which points the finger at me, my cabling and or an intermittent issue, all I do know is that when I turn everything on and nothing works, even with swapping stuff out I become very frustrated, additionally my system is pretty straight forward and I have owned a few Onkyo AVR's and Sharp TVs so I'm not like my parents who just randomly press buttons on remotes hoping for the best, i have a good grasp on set-up, use and trouble shooting.

I was HOT under the collar yesterday, I have calmed a bit today. Within the next few weeks I am pulling out all of my source components, all of my wiring, clearing out the entire entertainment stand of wiring, cable ties, cable runs and will start from scratch. I willl replace all of the 2 year old (Monoprice) HDMI cables regardless of if they are tested to be functional, better safe than sorry. I will then re-wire everything however this time everything will NOT be hidden, orderly and cable tied, that way when issues arise and they will it won't be a nightmare to swap cables, source components and the like.

I guess I will keep moving forward, I would like a replacement from Onkyo but I know that wont happen, when I am ready for an upgrade to a 4K capable AVR, Onkyo won't even be on the shopping list, that I do know with certianty.

Picture of Repaired HDMI Board

When the HDMI board is repaired, do they change a voltage regulator as well? Does someone have a pic of a repaired HDMI board?

No pics....

All my repair slip said for parts was HDMI Board...No mention of Voltage Regulator being changed.

Known good HDMI Cables

Known Good Source (PS3)

Known Good TV (Sharp Aqous)

HMDI Out #1 outputs only sound

When I switch to HDMI Sub Output#2, and select Monitor Out as Sub\Out#2, I get Sound and Video from the PS3...

This is not a cable issue, not a user error, its the AVR....Yet another email to Jose....Though I think he was taken aback by my second to last email where I swore, he never responded.

My 809 sound went out again today / Just got it back on June 10 / Been July 4th cant take it back to the repair cntr , so I'm going to email Mr Torres to see if there is another repair cntr that might be aware of the HDMI issues in my area.

Has anyone here has jump the Onkyo ship to another brand ? I'm thinking of just buying a different unit all together but not sure what brand to look for , Maybe a Anthem.

Always had Onkyo but I think I'm done with them.

To me it looks like a worse crap. Recycled or something..
Because the same crap should work at least for another 2 years as it did with original units.

Ok, another proud owner of an HDMI Board failed Onkyo 809 speaking. As I live outside USA, I had to get another Board from a seller on eBay for $140, plus shipping to south america.

Can anyone please post pictures o describe how to replace this board on the 809? Wrote Onkyo for help and...yep, no reply whatsoever. I will remain an Onkyo fan until the end of time...and beyond.

Thanks!

Sorry to hear about your 809 !!! If I were you I would reach out to jose.torres@us.onkyo.com to see what he recommends before trying to do a self repair. It can't hurt anything !!!
Luck...

This is not a cable issue, not a user error, its the AVR....Yet another email to Jose....Though I think he was taken aback by my second to last email where I swore, he never responded.

is there an end to your story?

Like changing a flat tire on a car ? (LOL) Would you care to post a "How To" on the repair with pics, tools needed if possible ?
This will give the end user (out of warranty) an option to do a self repair vs shipping to a repair facility.

Im on vacation however even after 2 emails to Jose over the last 1-2 weeks I've yet to get a reply.

When I get home I think im going to set up a video demonstration of the HDMI#1 not working. I'll make sure its a quick yet thorough video showing TV, cable box and PS3 working independent of the AVR then using the same working HDMI cables I'll video the failure of HDMI#1. I'll make sure to also show the AVRs front display and perhaps the GUI settings to show im not manipulating anything.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

Has anyone heard from Jose within the last week or 2? I do have his bosses email, I might reach out to her.

I'm very grateful for his quick action and hope I don't have this HDMI issue again .

I looked at my Sent Emails and I have sent the following:

I sent 2 Emails today, the 1st one got bounced back to me as undeliverable even though the email address was the same as I always use for him, the 2nd didn't get bounced back but no reply as of yet?

I also sent an email on July 10th, and July7th and July 3rd....

In the July 3rd Email I regretfully used profanity, not at him but to describe my level of frustration with his companies product, I'm fearing he is ignoring me because of this? Especially after hearing others have had contact with him since then?

In everyone of my emails since then I have apologized for using unprofessional language but have yet to hear him address, what I consider a 4th HDMI Out #1 Issue.

I may just find a call number, and see if I can have them get Jose's notes on my case so we can move forward, or I will have to type up a very brief synopsis to catch up the new Customer Service Tech...

I wonder if Onkyo would have an issue with him snubbing me?

I have Mr Torres's Bosses Email address as after my 1st conversation with Jose I was so impressed I asked for it, sending her an email to give positive feedback on his efforts. I'm thinking I just might send her the below as I haven't heard from him though others have? I think he's snubbing me.

I'm writing you as your the only other contact I have at Onkyo as all my recent efforts to contact an employee of yours (Jose Torres) has failed. I'm having another HDMI Out #1 issue with my NR-809, in a long series of issues, please let me explain in hopes you can help.

1.) On May 17th I contact Mr. Jose Torres @ Onkyo for assistance in dealing with a broken NR-809, HDMI Out #1 and #2 were not functioning. Jose authorized me to take my NR-809 to an authorized repair center for repairs, Pinnacle Service Solutions in Haverhill MA.

2.) On May 21st the above noted service center identified the HDMI Board to have failed and was replacing it with a new, updated HDMI Board.

3.) June 11th I pick up the repaired unit, hooked it all up and it functioned properly.

4.) June 17th 6 days after repairs I experienced intermittent HDMI Out failure, though the problem seemed to resolve itself.

5.) Spooked, on June 18th I order an Extended Warranty from Onkyo.

6.) June 21st the unit failed again, no audio or video out of HDMI #1 or #2. An AVS.com Forum member suggested I try a "Factory Re-Set" to see if this would resolve the problem, which it did, I once again had a "So-Called" working unit.

7.) Fearing that the unit was inherently flawed I contacted Mr. Jose Torres again to seek advice, Mr. Torres suggested that even though the unit appeared to be working after a Factory Re-Set that I should bring it back to the Authorized Repair Center as I only had a 90 day warranty on the work they completed and that it would be a good idea for them to inspect the unit yet again.

8.) June 24th I deliver the AVR back to Pinnacle Service Solutions in Haverhill Ma. for an inspection.

9.) June 25th the repair center contacted me informing me that the unit checked out fine, all specs and features were working correctly, there was nothing wrong with the unit.

10.) June 26th I pick up the NR-809 AVR, hook it all back up and it appears to work correctly.

11.) June 28th I try using the AVR I hear sound but cannot see video. I check all of my source components, all my cable connections, and all my settings to make sure it is not user error. Regrettably I sent a rather long winded email to Mr Torres (As he had been answering all my questions and authorizing repairs) were I used some profanity to describe my disgust with the AVR and the situation, I did not however use profanity towards Mr. Torres. Later that evening I tried using different HDMI cables and that seemed to cure the situation.
I believe I wrote another email that evening apologizing to Mr Torres informing him that I was having intermittent HDMI cable issues (Cables worked then didn't, or worked when configured differently then would seemingly not work) these issues seemed mostly resolved with a change to some newer cables, I never received a reply back to my June 28th emails from Mr Torres? Perhaps he thought the issue was resolved an didn't warrant a reply? Or perhaps he was insulted by my language which I am deeply sorry about, however it is curious he didn't offer a reply as an employee of Onkyo?

12.) July 3rd I try using my PS3 through the AVR, I could hear the sound of the PS3 but I couldn't see the video on my TV?
I made sure the HDMI cables worked on other components in the house, made sure that the PS3 operated correctly when hooked directly in to the TV, and made sure that the TV was functioning properly, everything was and is working as expected when not routed through the NR-809 AVR. I route everything back through the AVR but I swap the HDMI Out #1 Cable over to the HDMI Out#2 Port on the back of the AVR and select Monitor Out as Sub\Out#2, I get Sound and Video from the PS3. I also checked to see if the HDMI Out #1 would send through the Sound and Video from my Cable Box, it would only send through sound, but when I switched the Cable Box to the HDMI Out #2, the Cable Box, and as mentioned the PS3 worked as expected leading me to believe I am having another HDMI Out #1 issue\failure. I send yet another email to Mr. Jose Torres about the issue, he never responded, not to the emails on the June 28th(2), nor did he respond to this latest one on July 3rd?

13.) July 10th I send a quick email to Mr Torres inquiring why I hadn't heard back from him in regards to my latest (July3rd) issue\email? No reply?

14.) July 12th I send another follow up email to Mr. Torres, I get an automated "Undeliverable" reply back which seemed odd as it was his correct email address? I send another email to which I have yet to get a response back or an "Undeliverable" reply.

15.) July 12th Curious that I had not heard from Mr Torres since June 28th, especially since he was always prompt, professional and highly encouraging in our previous email exchanges I ask AVS Forum members who were posting in the 200 Page NR-809 Thread if they had heard from him after June28th, User "Grip24" had an email exchange with Mr Torres on July 5th regarding authorization for him to get his HDMI Board issues fixed. This is odd, I had sent numerous issues to Mr Torres, about real issues but never heard back from him?

In conclusion I've been having many issues and concerns dating all the way back to May 17th. I'm approaching 2 months of problems with this AVR. It was fixed once and though the numerous other times I've had issues with it may have been a combination of various problems, I am now sitting here, AGAIN with an AVR that doesn't function as advertised when using HDMI Out #1.

No other issues have cropped up with this unit, every time I have an issue whether it's a verified issue by the Service Center or something that happens in my home and ultimately gets resolved by Factory Re-sets or mixing and matching cabling, or just waiting a while, all seems to point to one thing, the NR-809 has issues with the HDMI Out Circuit Board.

Additionally I'm very surprised that a once very prompt, professional and helpful employee of Onkyo, Mr Torres has stopped corresponding with me on this issue? Perhaps he was insulted by my use of profanity ( I did apologize)? Perhaps there is some internal Onkyo Protocol to stop corresponding with irate customers? Or hopefully there is a very rational explanation as to why I haven't heard from him?

Regardless, I need assistance again as the HDMI Out #1 isn't working. I've incurred considerable cost in traveling back and forth to the Authorized Service Center and am inquiring as what I should do next?

Thanks for your time and effort in this matter.
